Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris Are Still Going Strong

I don’t know why I care at all since I don’t know these people, but Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris as a couple really bother me. Maybe it’s because I see Taylor as a pretty genuine, albeit naive, person, and I see Calvin has an insecure, desperate DJ who’s only using her to pump his career up a little more. I could be completely off the mark and he could genuinely like her, but… eh, I just don’t see it. Particularly since he was talking shit about her a few weeks before they got together. Anyway, I guess they seem “happy” for now?

Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris were spotted having dinner at Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica, California, on Tuesday evening.

“They were very close together, leaning in to speak to each other and laughing a lot,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

“Taylor looked gorgeous. It was a very sexy but classy look,” said the witness. “She was glowing, she seemed incredibly happy but also very at ease with Calvin.”

“They were dressed up and enjoying themselves, talking and laughing the entire time,” said the source.

Yikes. I can’t wait until this breakup – just think of how many amazing hit singles we’re gonna have on our hands! It’s gonna be so messy and the music is gonna be top notch.

Taylor Swift Doesn’t Want To Be Friends With Elizabeth Olsen

Taylor Swift has plenty of celebrity friends, and she doesn’t seem all that difficult to impress – if you’re famous and in the age bracket of 18-34, sign right up! But that’s not exactly the case, it seems, because there’s one person who was unable to penetrate the inner circle, so to speak: Elizabeth Olsen.

I know what you’re thinking: Who wouldn’t want to be friends with Elizabeth Olsen? She’s beautiful, she’s talented, she comes off as really down-to-earth and low-key… and she certainly looks the part for fitting in with Swift’s friend group. Unfortunately, during their brief meeting, Elizabeth failed to make her mark, a story she shared on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Wednesday night.

“I really love her, and earlier in my ballet class, I was doing a dance sequence to her music,” Olsen, 26, said of Swift. “I only listen to her music when I’m working out, which is a little too often because of Avengers. And I just talked at her for like a long time. I think I blew it because we didn’t exchange phone numbers or anything.”

“She was asking me which song it was, and I couldn’t remember the song title, and I wasn’t going to sing it for her!” she exclaimed. “I’m still nervous thinking about it right now.”

Slightly awkward, even though I think Elizabeth was probably being tongue-in-cheek about the whole thing. But since this got so much attention, you KNOW now that Taylor is going to reach out to her and purposely try to befriend her to overcompensate. I can see it now!

Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ Video Is Coming & You Can’t Stop It

taylor swift bad blood

It’s about time for a new Taylor Swift single, and that single is going to be “Bad Blood”, which we all know by now was inspired by Katy Perry. They used to be friends, then they weren’t, and now there’s a song out of it. The video is due to be released soon, and Taylor revealed when you’ll finally be able to see it – as well as the inspiration behind the video – on Twitter yesterday.

Here’s what other scoop we got, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter:

Directed by Joseph Kahn, it is being billed as “a video includes multiple starring roles played by a cast of Golden Globe winners, Emmy winners, Grammy winners, an Oscar nominee, blockbuster movie stars, as well as both new and iconic supermodels.”

Huh, sounds… exciting. Kahn directed the “Style” video, as well, if that gives you any indication of his, er, style…

Taylor Swift’s Next Album Will Be “Very Different” From ’1989′

taylor swift

I don’t know about you, but I’m still listening to Taylor Swift‘s last album, 1989. fairly regularly. That album is full of ~jams~ from start to finish and it’s going to be pretty hard for her to outdo herself next time. But she’s still looking forward to a new album that’s “very different” from this one when it DOES happen – and that includes Kanye West, as we all know.

From Entertainment Tonight:

“We’ve never been in the studio together, but he’s got a lot of amazing ideas. He’s one of those people who is just like idea, idea, like, ’What do you think of this?’ ’What do you think of that?’ He’s very creative and I think we’ve talked about it, but we’ve always talked about so many other things. I think I completely respect his vision as a producer, so thats all I know now. I have no idea what the next album is going to be, though.”

“I’m not making the next record yet. That’s going to take a lot of thinking about what that should be, because with 1989 — I love this album so much that I think it would be doing a real disservice to this album to try to copy it the next time around,” she said. “I think it’s going to have to be something very, very different creatively.”

Well, at least she’s not rushing anything for the sake of keeping her career on the run. Then again, it’s not like her popularity will be waning any time soon. The entire world LOVES Taylor Swift and she’s about to embark on a tour (if it hasn’t already started – I can’t remember) that will run for several years. I think she’s here to stay.

As for that Kanye collaboration… I’m a bit scared, to be honest. Nothing good can come of this… or can it?

Taylor Swift’s Relationship With Harry Styles Is Making Calvin Harris Jealous

harry styles taylor swift calvin harris

This is a story straight out of some Livejournal user’s fanfic, but let’s go with it. As you know, Taylor Swift is apparently dating Calvin Harris right now. While Calvin is a grown ass man and doesn’t really need to worry about Taylor ever being unfaithful, since that’s not really her bag, he’s apparently feeling super jealous about Harry Styles, since Taylor told Calvin that she had been occasionally hooking up with him until recently. Say whaaaat?

“He’s not usually the jealous type, but Taylor’s history with Harry has Calvin’s back up big-time, because he knows how charming Harry can be and what an impact he had on Taylor,” the source told OK!

The source added that Taylor “came clean” about the fact she and Harry were still hooking up “until recently” though they split back in 2013, and Calvin “appreciated her honesty.”

However, that’s not stopped the DJ from being a macho man about the whole love triangle, though he’s secretly worried he could be second rate in comparison to the One Direction star.

There’s no doubt he’s threatened,” the insider added. “He’s made Harry aware in no uncertain terms that he needs to stop sniffing around Taylor and to stay the f*** away.”

I mean, this entire story from start to finish is horseshit, but let’s pretend we believe it and talk logically here. I can buy that Calvin Harris would be jealous of Harry Styles, just in like, the grand scheme of the world. Harry’s seen as some sex god/heartthrob, and Calvin is a former fat kid (self-described) who got hot because he had something to prove to the world. In other words, it sure doesn’t come naturally to him. However, when it comes to Taylor, he barely even likes her anyway, so his getting territorial over her seems… eh, a bit unnecessary.

I like Calvin’s music, but I really REALLY am not into him and Taylor as a couple. I hope this one ends quickly so we can move on to Single Taylor status again, since she’s most enjoyable.

Taylor Swift reveals her mother has cancer

Taylor Swift is known for having a great relationship with her fans, and is always interacting with them on social networks like Instagram, Tumblr and Twitter. Because she’s built up such a wonderful relationship with them, it was with a heavy heart that she shared some bad news on her Tumblr page on Thursday, announcing that her mother has been diagnosed with cancer.

Hey guys,

I’m writing to you with an update I wish I wasn’t giving you, but it’s important and I’m used to sharing important events in my life with you. Usually when things happen to me, I process them and then write music about how I feel, and you hear it much later. This is something my family and I thought you should know about now.

For Christmas this year, I asked my mom that one of her gifts to me be her going to the doctor to get screened for any health issues, just to ease some worries of mine. She agreed, and went in to get checked. There were no red flags and she felt perfectly fine, but she did it just to get me and my brother off her case about it.

The results came in, and I’m saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer. I’d like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans private, but she wanted you to know.

She wanted you to know because your parents may be too busy juggling everything they’ve got going on to go to the doctor, and maybe you reminding them to go get checked for cancer could possibly lead to an early diagnosis and an easier battle… Or peace of mind in knowing that they’re healthy and there’s nothing to worry about. She wanted you to know why she may not be at as many shows this tour. She’s got an important battle to fight.

Thank you for caring about my family so much that she would want me to share this information with you.
I hope and pray that you never get news like this.

Love you.

Aw, man. That’s so sad! Of course, we don’t know where the cancer is and how far it is along, so there’s every chance that they caught it early enough for Taylor’s mom to get great treatment and make a full recovery. I hope that’s the case. As someone who has had way too many family members deal with cancer – as I’m sure we all have at this point – I know what an awful disease it is.

Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are dating, apparently

calvin harry taylor swift

I really want to believe that this is just another foundless Hollywood rumour, because if it’s true… I don’t even have words. Reports have been making the rounds lately that Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are dating, and oh man, if that’s happening… wow. In case you can’t recall who Calvin Harris is off the top of your head, he used to date Rita Ora and makes some pretty great pop music (and a shit ton of money doing fuck all as a “DJ”) on a regular basis.

Apparently Calvin previously said that he’d “swipe left” on TSwift on Tinder and called her “the opposite of his type”, but now he’s seeing cartoon hearts and dollar signs when he looks her way.

From TMZ:

So why the change of heart? Our sources who are prominent in the DJ world say Calvin got to know Taylor through the Haim sisters, Taylor’s best friends. Calvin and Haim have a hit song, “Pray to God,” that was released earlier this month. He got to know her and liked her.

But our sources say Calvin is the best businessman among DJs and knows the cache of dating the biggest pop star in the world.

They believe Calvin has developed feelings for Taylor, but they say he’s wired for success and there’s no hard dividing line separating his personal life from business.

Oh God, this is going to be a MAJOR disaster. Also, it looks like there’s more truth to this than any of us would like to admit since there are pictures and videos of them holding hands, snuggling and being all romantic with each other. Poor Taylor – she should have stuck a bit more strictly to her vow to stay single.
